Liberal arts approach to engineering education.

About

With a degree in one of the fundamental sciences and an engineering degree, graduates of our 3+2 program are more marketable than engineers with just one degree.

Students in our 3+2 preprofessional engineering program end their undergraduate years with two degrees, a bachelor in science from Baker and a degree from either the University of Kansas (KU) in Lawrence, Kansas; Washington University (Wash U) in Saint Louis, Missouri; or the University of Missouri at Kansas City (UMKC). You’ll benefit from the career centers and alumni networks of two institutions.

EXPLORE YOUR OPTIONS

Most engineering schools require students to choose a field of engineering in the first year of study. Not us. Learn about the different fields and take your time to find your passion.

Agile Learners

Educated at both a liberal arts college and a research university, 3+2 students are trained as agile learners. They graduate prepared to be adept problem solvers in a complex world where engineers are in desperately short supply.

Scholarships

Starting in their first year, students may be eligible for several academic scholarships based on high school GPA and ACT or SAT score.

Personal Attention

Our small class sizes help students receive one-on-one attention from our top-tier faculty for their first three years, unlike at larger schools.

The Baker Advantage

With a degree in one of the fundamental sciences and an engineering degree, graduates of our 3+2 program are more marketable than engineers with just one degree.

Careers

Our engineering 3+2 majors have gone on to the following careers:

  • Product Designer
  • Technical Consultant
  • Operations Manager
  • Computer Hardware Specialist
